Holland Holidays for the young ones: Viva la Frisia!

Bookers of this package receive 6 days of sailing lessons on the Frisians waters by a well trained instructor. After a day of sailing a bed is waiting for you in hostel Stayokay. Heeg is a real water sports place and is located 10 kilometres below Sneek, on the northern side of the Heegermeer (the biggest lake of Friesland). Heeg is therefore the perfect place to discover other cosy village and the Frisian lakes and cities.

Due to the fact that the instructors want to learn you as much as possible about sailing, a sailing day starts in the morning at 10.00 en takes until 17.00. Classes will be given in sailing yachts called 'Valken'. This type of boat can hold 3 to 4 people with instructor. The stability of the boat and its spacious tub makes it the ideal boat to give lessons in. The boat is very suitable for the Frisian lakes and small inland waterways due to its shallow draft.

Never sailed before? No problem, you can jump in at any level. Lessons will be given according to the VDWS system (Verband Deutscher Windsurfing und Wassersportschulen). This is a German organisation who established a uniform international certificate system for sailing courses and made it their goal to maintain this system. You are able to rent a boat in most European countries like Germany, France and Italy with this VDWD certificate. There are 500 sailing schools joining this VDWS system until now. The package includes all teaching materials, instructions, lifejackets, a sheet set, full care and shuttle services.
